Drafted in the 6th round (169th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2016 (signed for $25,000)
A senior, Gonzalez entered Georgia Tech with some fanfare and has been a four-year starter, ranking third in school history with 300 hits. He's played left field predominantly, part of the reason he wasn't drafted as a junior, but always has mixed in some third base, and a utility role is his ticket as a pro, as is his bat. Gonzalez has some bat speed, is at least an average runner and thrower, and finally tapped into his raw power this spring with 11 of his 20 career homers. He cut his swing-and-miss down a bit as a senior, a major issue earlier in his career.
